Join the Refill Revolution

Have you #GotTheBottle to prevent plastic pollution?

What is National Refill Day?

On Wednesday 19th June 2019 we’ll be asking the nation if they’ve #GotTheBottle to prevent plastic pollution. 

Brought to you by City to Sea as part of the award-winning Refill Campaign, National Refill Day is an awareness campaign to get the UK public to stop bottling it when it comes to our drinking water.  

We want to create a new social norm for refilling on the go – saving us money, keeping us hydrated and preventing millions of single-use plastic bottles at source 

National Refill Day is coming

19th June 2019

Did you know…

Over the last 15 years, the consumption of bottled water has doubled in the UK. Of the 13 billion plastic bottles used each year – an estimated 7.7 billion, or nearly 60% are plastic water bottles! 

Sadly, it’s been estimated than almost half of these bottles are NOT recycled and around 15 million plastic bottles are littered, landfilled or incinerated every day – ending up in our natural environment and flowing into our oceans 

Find your fill!

Save money, stay hydrated and help prevent plastic pollution at source. 

But there is a solution... 

We’re lucky in the UK to have some of the highest quality drinking water in the World and we want everyone, everywhere to know how easy it is to Refill on the go removing the need to ever buy a single use plastic water bottle ever again.

Working with our partners Water UK, Chilly’s and Robeco, we want to make this year’s National Refill Day our biggest yet.

In 2018, which was our first ever National Refill Day we were trending on Twitter ALL day, reached over 33 million people and had the support of DEFRA, The Environment Agency, Government Ministers, MPs, and campaigners like Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
